A Sweeter Way to Celebrate Opening Day

For baseball fans, opening day is anxiously waited for all winter long. In Cincinnati, WH Candy’s home city, a parade is held in honor of the Reds return to Great American Ballpark and many of us are known to take off work to enjoy the Opening Day festivities. With the start of baseball season comes the start of baseball themed parties. Check out these great ideas to make your party a little sweeter.

Home Run Birthdays

A baseball birthday party is a great theme for a sports lover of any age. Personalized chocolate favors are an affordable option whether your baseball fan is celebrating his or her 1st, 16th or 50th birthday. Add custom stickers on HERSHEY’S KISSES candy to include in your baseball candy buffet. Guests can fill organza bags with their favorite treats to take home and enjoy!


Big League Graduations

Your graduation party is sure to be sweeter with personalized HERSHEY’S candy bar favors featuring your son or daughter’s senior picture. Include these special treats on plates at the grad party candy buffet for everyone to enjoy next to jars and vases of colorful Jelly Belly Jelly Beans. Your bright display will be different than any other they may attend this year!


Grand Slam Weddings

Can’t decide on a wedding theme? Why not center your special day around a sport that you both love! Host your celebration at your local ballpark so you can take fun pictures on the mound and in the dugout. You can serve mini baseball fare like hotdogs, french fries and pizza as appetizers before an upscale meal at the park’s clubhouse. Personalized baseball themed candy bars would look great at each place setting!


Little Slugger Baby Showers

You found out your little all star is a baby boy! Create a baseball themed baby shower with all your favorite things from the ballpark. Fill tall glass vases with baseballs and peanuts for a unique twist to a traditional centerpiece. Family and friends can create onesie “uniforms” for the little slugger to wear each month to show how he’s grown. Reward their hard work with delicious candy bar favors with your message of thanks.


Out of the Park Bar Mitzvahs

Celebrate your son’s religious milestone with a Bar Mitzvah party theme all his friends will enjoy. An all-star sports theme or baseball bash is an easy way to tie in the decor with his interests. Candy buffets are a hot trend that are the hit of the party. Create custom wrapped mini sized chocolate to go in glass bowls at the dessert table. Looking for a DIY favor? Buy the wrappers only then buy the candy to wrap them yourself!


All-Star Retirements

It’s finally here — your retirement! Thank family and friends for celebrating with you by handing out sports themed HERSHEY’S candy bars with your thank you message on the back of the personalized chocolate wrapper. Shopping to surprise the retiree? Customized candy favors are a great memento for any baseball fan. You can have the retiree pass them out or display them on the dessert table!
